How well can the GeForce GTX 580 EVGA Classified Ultra 3GB Edition run games
14 Nov 2019 - Graphics card reviewed

Getting one of these GeForce GTX 580 EVGA Classified Ultra 3GB Edition graphics cards allows the gamer to run indie system requirements and some less demanding AAA titles. In today’s PC hardware terms these are considered middle range for gaming performance. Capable of running games with up to a DirectX 12 requirement.

What FPS performance can the GeForce GTX 580 EVGA Classified Ultra 3GB Edition get on latest AAA 2019 games? In particular our game review looks at the FPS achieved running on Ultra graphics settings on the 1080p screen resolution as well as 1440p and 4K. Of the 1000 most demanding recommended specs found in game requirements today, this gpu is more powerful than the graphics requirement of 113 games in todays list.

With 1080p being the most common gaming resolution at the moment we explored how well the GeForce GTX 580 EVGA Classified Ultra 3GB Edition can run Star Wars: Jedi - Fallen Order at 1080p and saw it return weak frame rates at the following graphics settings - Low: 0 FPS, Medium: 0 FPS, High: 0 FPS and Ultra: 0 FPS. For performance contrast we can see that Borderlands 3 returns a weak 5 FPS at Ultra 1080p.

As the PC gaming masses explore larger screen resolutions we decided to run some game checks at 1440p across a few popular games. We discovered the GeForce GTX 580 EVGA Classified Ultra 3GB Edition ran Star Wars: Jedi - Fallen Order to a weak performance level. Results across the graphics settings looked like this, Low: 0 FPS, Medium: 0 FPS, High: 0 FPS and Ultra: 0 FPS. Another game tested was Borderlands 3, L: 10FPS, M: 8FPS, H: 5FPS, U: 4FPS. And then we checked graphics card performance on FIFA 20, which returned L: 125FPS, M: 104FPS, H: 76FPS, U: 56FPS at 1440p. In summary we feel the GeForce GTX 580 EVGA Classified Ultra 3GB Edition running at 1440p is in need of some graphics adjustments to get some stability, which means its not an ideal gaming resolution for this GPU.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 580 EVGA Classified Ultra 3GB Edition graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 580 EVGA Classified Ultra 3GB Edition in your PC? There is around 6-12 months of top end gaming left in this card, at which point its graphics card replacement time, assuming the GeForce GTX 580 EVGA Classified Ultra 3GB Edition is part of your PC gaming machine.

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GTX 580 EVGA Classified Ultra 3GB Edition?
